After one of the best Novembers on record with sunshine and above average temperatures up and down the country, the great autumn weather is set to end this weekend…
According to the State Met Office, the change in weather will start today with rain and strong south-westerly winds forecast on Friday. Temperatures will drop around 10 °C in some parts, whilst winds will reach up to 130 kilometres per hour.
On Saturday most of the country will be wet with a snow warning for continental Croatia. The heaviest fall, up to 20 centimetres, is expected in the Lika and Gorski Kotar area. Around 10 centimetres of snow is expected to fall on Saturday in central Croatia, whilst in eastern Croatian in Slavonia up to 5 centimetres is expected.
The Dalmatian coast will not experience the snow which is set to fall around the country on the weekend, but strong bura winds are forecast. Sunday will see the weather start to improve.
